TGS and Schlumberger have announced a new multi-client nodal seismic project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The project, named “Amendment”, will comprise acquisition of a 2,350 km2 multi-client seismic survey in the Mississippi Canyon and Atwater Valley protraction areas of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

This prolific area includes open acreage, existing producing assets and new discoveries. Seismic data will be acquired using Fairfield Geotechnologies 4C nodal acquisition technology with operations expected to start in Q4 2018.

TGS and Schlumberger will apply their full azimuth processing expertise and expect to deliver final data to customers in Q1 2020.

“The Amendment project will enhance our current data coverage in the Central U.S. Gulf of Mexico. E&P companies are showing increased interest in the benefits of nodal seismic data to overcome imaging challenges in this region. In the Amendment project, TGS and Schlumberger will reimage underlying WAZ seismic data to provide modern, high-quality nodal seismic data to our clients,” said Kristian Johansen, CEO of TGS.

Maurice Nessim, president, WesternGeco, Schlumberger, added, “Schlumberger and TGS have built up extensive geophysical and geological knowledge in this prolific part of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. In line with the WesternGeco asset- light strategy, the application of nodal seismic technology and state-of-the-art imaging techniques will help to accelerate hydrocarbon discovery, development and production for our clients. This unique data set will provide a step change in illuminating complex subsurface structures and help E&P companies to maximize the value of their producing assets and rejuvenate their exploration portfolios. This highly integrated project will combine well log data, high-quality orthogonal WAZ and new nodal measurements to provide foundations for the first industry-funded regional nodal survey in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.”

This survey is supported by industry prefunding.

6th Offshore Well Intervention Conference Gulf of Mexico

The Offshore Well Intervention Gulf of Mexico conference (OWI GOM) is returning to Houston, Texas for its sixth year on Wednesday 20 – Thursday 21 November.

Featuring Anadarko, BP, Shell, Chevron, BHGE and Oceaneering, the conference aims to help operators transition to the latest compliance updates, WI systems and business models that enhance safety, quicken well access and improve commerciality.

Across two days, more than 200 delegates, 15 exhibitors and 30 speakers will network together and create solutions to some of the most pertinent industry challenges right now, through a conference programme focused on:

  1. Clarifying compliance updates
  2. Quicker well access and safer well control
  3. ​Understanding HPHT well intervention (systems)
  4. Forecasting well intervention activity, discussing new commercial models and comparing platform options
  5. Best practice riserless well intervention
  6. ​The latest well intervention equipment

For registration, speaking or sponsorship enquiries contact Abigail Clifton on aclifton@offsnet.com; +44 (0) 203 793 8800.
